Come Fest with us
How do short film blocks work?
Short film blocks feature 6-10 titles and usually run about 90 minutes. Some of our blocks are themed (like Thrills & Chills), but most are a curated so you can experience a smorgasbord of comedy, drama, documentary, and animated films all in one sitting. One general admission ticket gets you into one block of films.
How do Festival Passes work?
Festival passes are the best deal for festival-goers planning to attend multiple film blocks. We offer an All Festival Pass, which grants access to all screenings and events (including Opening Night) as well as a Weekend Festival Pass, good for all Saturday and Sunday screenings.

Tickets are available here on our site or at the Kelly Strayhorn Theater 30 minutes prior to each screening.
